LIN 317 - Language Change

4 credits (Spring)
This course investigates the nature of language change and the principles developed by linguistics to account for these changes. We will examine the various domains in which change occurs (phonological, morphological, syntactic, and lexical/semantic), and the social and linguistic motivations for change. The course will address the methods used to determine the earlier profile of a language or its parent language; students will use these methods in their own research projects.

Prerequisite: LIN 216 LIN 228 , or LIN 270 .
Note: Not offered every year.
